My Take on Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

• Price is Rs.475/- but some online stores sell this for Rs.450/-.
• Shades available – 4 in India.
• Packaging – the packaging of this compact is quite different from the ones that I have used earlier – like Revlon T&G, Lotus Herbals. The compact comes in tow compartments. The upper one with transparent lid holds the powder and the lower one which slides holds the mirror and the puff.
• The puff which comes along with it is OK. But if you don’t want to spoil it you can use a brush.
• Quantity Required – A little bit is required to give your face a good finish. And maybe after 4 hours you need to do a touch up. But again this may vary under a different set of conditions like if your are outside in the hot weather.
• Texture – its really very smooth and does not cause irritation. Some compacts that I have used earlier have caused some kind of burning sensation but not this.
• Appearance on skin – Really takes away the excess oil and gives a nice matte finish to the skin. Actually it gives a nice look to the face. Though the compact gives a matte look which the oily skinned beauties will love it will not make dry skin look cakey.
• The coverage is medium and it will go well with any good foundation or without it.
• Smell – No distinctive smell which is a big plus for me.
• Availability – No issues with availability.
• Shades – comes in three shades and there are testers so you will not have an issue with it.

Pros of Maybelline Dream Matte Pressed Powder

1. Did not cause any irritation and gives a flawless matte look.
2. Can be used with and without foundation.
3. No specific smell.
4. Does not make the skin cakey or give the skin a ghastly look. Quite a decent product.
5. I bought shade medium sand and it blends really well with my skin tone.
6. No breakouts or burning sensation.
7. Available and there are testers.
8. Dermatologically tested and wont clog pores.

Cons of Maybelline Dream Matte Pressed Powder

1. The packaging. Its bulky as there are two compartments but maybe this is to keep the powder hygienic but I am used to the typical packing of compacts. Not only that if you want to take a sneak peek into the mirror you will actually have to touch the puff which is not very appealing.
2. Some might find it pricey. As cheaper compacts are available,
3. Shade selection limited
4. No SPF.

Points – Will give it 4 out of 5.

  1. I just moved to dream matte from Revlon T&G… have a lots of visible pores around my nose.. but this is doing a good job!! i use it over my gel sunscreen.. still it gives decent coverage.

  2. somehow didn’t suit me 🙁
    it doesn’t mattify in summers even thou i have dry skin and yes u r right v pricey fr wat it delivers

  3. will it work for dry skinned people…or just for oily skinned..i was wondering because of the matte factor mentione

    1. I have a dry to combination skin and it works perfect for me. Just moisturise your face before applying it. It also works better on subsides that oily/white thin layer we get after applying sunscreen because of the matte factor 🙂

  4. Maybelline Dream matte is one of my most favorite products ever! Never broke me out, gives a smooth finish. I have purchased too many of these yet. I even like it better than Mac mineralised skin finish. Just apply it with face kabuki brush as puff can give heavy coverage and it can look cakey. But with kabuki brush it gives a flawless finish 🙂
